Migrating To Write.as

The Fosstodon Hub is a huge part of the Fosstodon project. We use the Hub not only as a blog, but also as a way of tracking our funding and sharing useful information to our members. Basically, the Fosstodon Hub is a one-stop shop for all things related to Fosstodon.

The Hub was previously based on a flat file CMS called Grav. Grav worked great and we had no complaints generally. However, we wanted to integrate the Fosstodon Hub with the Fediverse if possible. That's where Write.as came in.


We decided to sign up for a Write.as Pro account for a number of reasons:

  1. We get to support on of our fellow Fediverse members.
  2. Write.as is SUPER simple to use and it takes the headaches out of managing another site for us.
  3. Our blog can now be accessed across the Fediverse, just search for @blog@hub.fosstodon.org.

We're very happy with our decision to migrate over to Write.as. If you're thinking about starting a blog and want something that easy to manage, privacy respecting and had indie web functionality built write it, you can't go far wrong with Write.as.

They have free accounts that are perpetually free, or you can pay $5/month for a Pro account. We thought that the Pro account was well worth the money!

If you have any problems with using this site, please contact us so we can fix the problem.
